The solution is based on Thermal imaging and cloud hosted analytics and is portable, accurate, privacy aware and can be used for women of all ages.
Nidhi Mathur, COO & Co-founder, Niramai, said, “As part of Niramai’s community screening initiative, we partner with organisations like Way2Health Diagnostics that have extensive outreach and focus on women’s health, to jointly conduct breast health screenings. Our goal is to screen 1 million women by 2022.”
Niramai solution is particularly suitable for community screening due to its radiation-free, affordable and completely private experience to the user. “Bringing the service to the door-step of women is an important feature of preventive screening that we believe Way2Health Diagnostics will help us achieve in Mumbai”, added Nidhi Mathur.
